Time for a soup recipe. The first time I had this soup was a few years ago when we took a family trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico for Christmas. I remember standing in the kitchen of the amazing house we rented (it had heated floors!!) with my mom making a big batch of this to eat after we went on a candlelight walk. So delicious.
Honestly, I really haven’t thought much about it since then…but while I was grocery shopping over the weekend, I noticed a large pile of tomatillos and it got me thinking. Salsa verde (a key ingredient in this soup) is usually loaded with sodium, so I decided to be brave and try making my own! Turns out it’s super easy. Homemade salsa verde, some crockpot pulled pork and just a few other ingredients and you’ve got yourself a winner of a dinner!
Here’s what you need:
In case you’re unfamiliar with tomatillos, here’s what they look like:
Use a kitchen scale to weigh out 12 oz or just use approximately 7-8 medium tomatillos.
Are you a fan of salsa verde? Or do you prefer red salsa?
